About Marie Paradis


Marie Paradis was the first woman to climb Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps. At the age of 18, she joined a group of 6 men to successfully complete the 8th ascent in history. She did so in 1809, wearing a long wool dress and leather shoes. We hope Marie would be happy to know about the strides we are making at Paradis Sport to outfit today's women for adventure and challenge!
